Jaguar F-Type rear-spoiler recall - The fault could pose a possible danger at high speeds for Jaguar F-TYPE owners and other road users.

Just a total of seven, 2014 built models of the Jaguar F-TYPE are being recalled to fix a software issue that could affect the function of the deployable rear spoiler.

Affecting only those vehicles fitted with the super-charged 3.0L V6 engine, the ACCC recall notice for the Jaguar F-TYPE recall says the controlling software may fail to apply the vehicles speed limiter to restrict the road speed when deployable rear spoiler (DRS) failed to deploy.

Where road speed exceeds 217kph with the DRS in the down position vehicle stability will be compromised and the degree of directional control minimised, this significantly increases the risk of an accident.

Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a Jaguar authorised repairer who will update the vehicle with the correct calibration software.
